This is from Black Panther #7, the first issue where Hudlin is no longer the sole writer. Instead, it's co-written with Jonathan Maberry. The previous issues had Morlun being defeated and T'Challa saved, but not before Morlun killed W'Kabi and Zuri. T'Challa's sister Shuri is now the new Black Panther, while T'Challa is still recuperating from when Doom showed him who was boss.

In Christopher Priest's run Everett K. Ross was one of the major supporting characters. He showed up briefly in Hudlin's original run, but he bore little similarity to Priest's version. Now he's back again... and it's more of the same.

Shuri has just finshed meeting with Obama when a voice says "Princess Regent... a word?"

Also, the end of the issue has a little revelation about the Dora Milaje...

a black woman should slap Hudlin.

Not that I've been keeping up with Hudlin's book, but I thought Storm would have been considered the acting regent/head of state until T'Challa recovered?

If this ever really gets out Hudlin will never be laid again... neither will the new guy sadly, and this may not be his fault.

That isn't Ross. It's a Skrull.

I'm pretty sure they will.

Especially since he was _never_ a "spook". He was an Oxford trained lawyer with the Office of the Chief of Protocol.

He's also fallen from "Friend Ross", to "occasionally useful". It apparently aged him 20 years, as well.

brought to you by the guy who was dumb enough to undermine his own point by changing out the imperalist scientist for a generic mercenary man.

Right then. I'm off to beat my head against a wall for awhile.

Alright, what is everyone else complaining about? The mischaracterization of that? Or Black Panther's harem?

Seriously, looking at the way the Princess is drawn in the car scenes, I don't see where her features (nose and lips particularly) are less pronounced than those of the natives in that Fantomah strip. (Better technique and printing, of course). Is it only racist if it's from the Golden Age?

Could someone post some of Priest's run, if they get the chance? It looks interesting.

Completely disagree. I think she looks black, as opposed to the stereotypical white-woman-with-dark-skin in most comics.

I completely agree. Nothing about the art strikes me as being offensive or exaggerated.

Seriously? Zuri's dead?

Sweet Seminole in a sidecar, Hudlin has ruined this comic more than any comic has ever been ruined.

It must be just when the art is from the 1940s, then. Maybe it's the better production techniques.

Oh, good, Jonathan Maberry, the guy who's so utterly unreceptive to constructive criticism that he creates sockpuppet accounts to defend his own writing (http://ifdestroyed.blogspot.com/2009/04/remarkable-coincidence-alert.html). Yeah, this bodes REAL well.

...Isn't Ross supposed to look something like Michael J. Fox? That's always who he reminded me of in the Priest run.

It seems like you get offended whenever someone says something from the Golden Age or Silver Age of comics is racist/sexist.
